The Northern Branch is the only metropolitan venue of the GSDCV to train on Saturday afternoons. This gives members from other Branches the flexibility of an alternative venue when the situation demands a different day. We have a group of very experienced instructors who can give guidance in general obedience for nine week old puppies through to older mature dogs, obedience, trialing, Rally O, tracking and endurance.

Training times are:  Obedience classes commence at 2.00pm, With regard to show training, we are not currently conducting classes.

We do encourage members to arrive about 30 mins prior to take advantage of the socialization that occurs before classes.
